Those '81 NYE shows were quite something. Jerry's voice was still sweet and smooth, check out the Black Pete. Jerry's guitar was talking to me throughout these shows. I was such a newb, 20 years old and I thought I was worldly and wise...hah!
These were my first camp out for multiple nights shows. We were front row each night, including NYE - which was a struggle of mammoth proportions..

Show #5...should have been #6 but I was an idiot and skipped 9/12/81 - my #1 regret from all the things that happened from 12/31/80 - 5/29/95.
